In Memory of Lance Hickey

The team at is still reeling from the unexpected loss of our dear friend and colleague, Lance Hickey, who was a core contributor to this website. Lance exemplified a rare combination of intellectual brilliance and compassion. He  was devoted to teaching and writing about philosophy, and especially one of the greatest goals of philosophy, the quest for happiness. He contributed to the vision of our organization as well as the content of the website, and to name only a few examples, the lion’s share of contributions on Socrates, Aristotle, Locke, Jahoda and Dener  in the History of Happiness section, the FAQ on the Science of Happiness, the wonderful description of Flow, as well as large chunks of editorial work on the Science of Happiness. If you appreciate his work and the content of this website, please visit his memorial page. Yet words cannot describe how much we appreciated his friendship and his devotion to a great cause.
